A fresh batch of one hundred and forty recruits of the Freetown City Council Metropolitan Police has passed out on Saturday 29th May 2010 at the Hastings Police Training School after six weeks of intensive training.

During the colorful ceremony, the Assistant Inspector General of Police responsible for of training, Richard Moigbeh commended the Freetown City Council for assisting the Sierra Leone Police in protecting lives and properties. He entreated on the need for a continued collaboration between the two institutions in ensuring maximum security.

AIG Moigbeh informed that in a bid to scale up defense, the Sierra Leone Police welcomed the councils request for the training of their own officers on their facility at Hastings. He admonished the new recruits to demonstrate professionalism while performing their duties, while urging them to shy away from accepting bribes and other corrupt practices. "The SLP and the Metropolitan Officers should work hand in hand to see that strong security measures are put in place for Sierra Leone, and with council maintaining their own force, they are expected to have internal investigative powers with their professional officers, and in turn work with the government and the people of this country to save lives and property."

He informed that the Police Training School will soon be transformed into a national police college, offering different courses for police and other officers.

Mayor Herbert George Williams in his remarks said that the training exercise was the first phase of the job of the Mets, since according to him many challenges lay ahead of them. "You are expected to put up best behaviors to bring pride to the council and the nation as a whole. You should not abuse people because you are officers," he demanded of them, reiterating that they should maintain cordial relationship with the citizens they are working with.

He called on all stakeholders to give free access to the council police, and to give them their respect as they were all working to improve on the security standard of the country.

Representing the local government and internal affairs minister was Hon. Raymond Kabia who described the occasion as a mile stone in the decentralization process. "With the city getting over crowed by the day, the Freetown City Council is doing well as their city police will now serve as back up the SLP," the deputy minister said. He advised them to stay from corruption and other malpractices.
